On Just Posted: Nikon 1 V1 and J1 review article (442 comments in total)

at first I was critical of this system, but after a bit of thought this camera makes sense. I'd complain if the 2.7 crop factor sensor actually meant a decrease in overall IQ, however this camera offers M43 level performance which isn't really a compromise.

The way I understand it, this camera is designed to be a camera that prioritises capturing things. There are also other things that this camera does that M43 and other MILC will be unable to do, such as the high FPS burst, or always-in-focus video.

Sure, you might go "why not manual focus", or question why you'd need such a high burst rate, and that, that is just marketing but thats really the cry of photographers who are a bit too conservative and who need to realise that 'good photography' doesn't mean shooting with your hands tied behind your back.

I hope the next J1/V1 iteration has a better processor/PASM dial, or at least an option to activate an "advanced mode"

On CES 2012: Lytro Photowalk article (140 comments in total)

I wonder what is with the biggotry on dpreview. I thought that there would be better here. A lot of the comments here seem like they're from photographers who are scared of seeing their profession 'die out'.

And they must be incredibly short sighted to see "no application exists". Imagine, you take 64 photos from the same perspective, at different settings from one camera in one snap. That'd let you choose after the shot; that'd make a camera a ridiculously powerful tool.

I think they're the same people who see photography as its own sacred art form in which much bravado is thrown around.

In reply to:

BobORama: The great thing about the D4 is that with ISO 204,800 its now possible to see the human soul, or lack thereof in individuals sitting in an unlit salt mine.

-- Bob

I think they need a new system for film speeds soon...

people need to understand that cameras like the D700,D3,D3s and this are drugs. The main appeal is the monstrous, light-sucking sensor. Nothing else gives this kind of performance for a relatively accessible price.

Just wait for the D800S if you guys want it at a more sane price.

In reply to:

Retro Joe: Looks great but for the price you can get yourself(or many other high end camera combos for that matter...this is just one example to illustrate the overpricing by Nikon):

1.D7000 $1199
2. 5D MkII $2299
3. K5 $1099
4. a77 $1399

Unless you specifically require the improvements, what's the point in buying? The one thing I will say in its favor, high end cameras today are holding their value better and longer as the tech improvements have slowed dramatically in past few years.

thats the same as saying that you could afford more than 50 canon A1500 powershots. Nikon doesn't really overprice considering the D700 exists with a similar sensor to the D3s (which you conveniently ignored).

You're comparing a bodies made of normal materials versus higher end qc + much more expensive materials.

flood much?

I hope they implement wifi on the NX20. That would have so many practical implications that would make the camera so much more useful than just a piece of equipment by itself.

lifelibertyproperty: This is such a stooped article! No love for Rokinon/Samyang 85mm f/1.4?! BIAS ALERT! At $280 (seen as low as $240 in last few months) that lens is a bargain compared to the ones listed above. Also, the 35mm f/1.4 ain't bad for $500-600.

If you read the article, they made a mention to those lenses.

In reply to:

NetMage: I think the Samyang lenses should mention they are manual aperture as well as focus - MF doesn't bother me too much, but I'm not interested in manual aperture as well. Definitely a con for me.

That is not the case with the pentax, sony alpha, and Nikon mount lenses; those ones have auto aperture, with the option of manual aperture.

You guys should probably have a check of samyang's 35 1.4; the premium lens killer :)

That noise pattern is very different to the some of the samples that we've seen on the forums. this looks like it was shot with a preproduction firmware? RAWs please :)

This would be awfully unbalanced given how light a S2 body is...

A S2 for street photography? You guys must be nuts; this thing's only for studio work.

On Just Posted: In-depth Sony SLT-A77 review article (225 comments in total)

Although everything isn't about noise performance, I find it somewhat astounding that the RAW noise level of this camera is outright the worst even at base sensitivities even when compared to old CSCs like the NX100. And the resizing theory does not really hold that well as programs don't know what to bin as noise.

Everything else about the camera is good however, but I'd love to see a better sensor inside it; possibly a camera thats more focused on image quality than features which alter, but not really improve the shooting experience.

Landscape photographers will be very happy with this though.
